The correct ID of the package indeed is 83532, whereas 80587 is the ID
of the package base. The RPC interface returns information on packages
but you can only delete package bases. Maybe we should add the package
base ID of packages to the new RPC interface?

Yes, this is because package base ID and package ID are the same for
these packages.
